Moon over Crowborough

When I added the category "Favourite Spots" recently I had in mind to showcase some of the specific country parks, sites of special interest and local beauty spots but while we were out walking the dog just before dusk one evening last week, it struck me that anywhere can lift the spirit if the conditions are just right.

Taking photo in the woods

Barely 500m down from the Sticks, a public footpath crosses the lane. To the left it climbs up through the fields and along the path over Marshes Hill to the common, to the right it passes through the yard of Lion's Paw farm, over the styles, along side the farm buildings, through a meadow I always think might be, with only a little imagination, alpine, and down into the woods. 

Path across Marshes Hill

Our official address is Marshes Hill, Brown Edge. Marshes Hill, a local nature reserve is a site of biological interest. It is the only remaining part of the old healthland that was once common in the area before agriculture and cultivation. It is also a good vantage point for enjoying the panoramic views.
